Recent Developments in Economic Methodology
This important collection tackles the main developments and contributions by the leading individuals in the field of economic methodology since 1990.
Volume one looks at the chief historical developments, including articles on Popper and Lakatos, rhetoric and discourse, realism, constructivism, the economics of science, and symmetry and reflexivity.
The second volume focuses on new, leading approaches – feminist economic methodology, postmodernism, and methodological pluralism and open systems thinking – and also covers broad topics of concern – rationality, philosophy of mind, and evolution.
Volume three brings together articles explaining the methodological choices of economists, and includes sections on models and assumptions, econometrics, microeconomics and macroeconomics, normative themes, formalism, and history of economics. The volume concludes with a set of discussions on the present state of economic methodology.
